APPENDIX B: Education, Training, and Working in Games

APPENDIX B

Education, Training, and Working in Games

If you're interested in getting a foothold in gaming, attending a school that specializes in teaching game-art courses, modeling, programming, or animation can be helpful, although a degree isn't necessary to gain entry into careers in this arena. Many people learn on the job—what are known as journeyman skills—and can start in entry-level positions or internships.

Job or internship seekers need to prepare a variety of materials to showcase themselves and their skills and find ways to interact with people in the field. This appendix discusses some of the materials that should be prepared and offers suggestions on ways to network and get training.
